From our friends at Equal Rights Washington:
>READ>TAKE ACTION>FORWARD >
Join us in opposing discrimination against same-sex partners.
Pledge to Decline to Sign Referendum 71 today. It’s up to the rest of us to ensure opponents of Domestic Partnerships do not take Washington State two steps back on this critical civil rights issue.
Lawmakers took a huge step forward in protecting Washington families when they voted overwhelmingly to expand Washington’s domestic partnership law and gave registered partners all of the same rights as married couples under State law. Referendum 71 was filed to repeal the Domestic Partnership Expansion Law of 2009. If referendum backers are able to collect 120,000 signatures needed to put the referendum on the ballot, registered domestic partners could lose 250 legal protections in the November election.
Ask your friends, family, and co-workers to take the pledge also, in order to keep Washington’s Domestic Partnership Law.
